Ted Wallace, church relations coordinator

My name is Ted, and I have worked with OM France since January 2015. I have a beautiful wife and four children and we live to the east of Paris.

We came to France in 2012 on a short-term mission, and later, we felt God’s call to return and work with churches in France full-time. My role within OM is Church Relations Coordinator. I want to build on the many links OM France already has created during its 60 years of existence so that we can partner with the local churches and help their vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached.

The first phase of our work has consisted of spending 16 months in language school, getting adjusted to French schools for the kids, and a lot of listening and learning. We have met with several pastors, hearing the vision God has placed on their hearts and getting a better idea of the needs of some churches.

Working together, I hope to find ways that OM can support and meet the needs of the churches by pairing our current activities and fields of expertise with their needs. I believe OM can best fulfill our mission by partnering with and mobilizing the Church. I am excited about working with pastors who have a vision for their community and are looking for concrete ways to reach their goals. Paul said, ‘’he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’’ This work has most certainly begun, and I can’t wait to see what He has in store for the future!
